And it simply won't have the same resonance if two other actors step in for Pine and Hemsworth. Pine was going to portray Captain James T. Kirk for the fourth time but backed out at the last minute due to persisting disagreement.
Of the 1000 Star Treks all vying to be a real thing, one of them is a movie where Kirk (or someone, I don't know) travels through time and gets to meet his hunky dad, who was played by Chris Hemsworth in the JJ Abrams reboot.
The as-yet untitled project was believed to have been gearing up for production, with "Jessica Jones" veteran S.J. Clarkson on board as the film franchise's first female director and Danai Gurira from "Black Panther" expected to have a key role.
Star Trek 4 looks set to boldly go where the (current) franchise has yet to go as the film looks set to lose its star.
Nintendo Switch Online service coming in the second half of September
There will also be retro love as well for members, including the original NES version of The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros . Nintendo's Switch online service was first scheduled for a release a year ago , but was later delayed to Fall 2018.
The Aussie already took on the role in a prologue for the 2009 reboot of the storied franchise, and again briefly in Star Trek: Into Darkness.
The actors claim that they had deals in place for the fourth Kelvin Timeline movie, but the studios want them to take pay cuts because of the "mediocre" performance of Star Trek Beyond.
The article specifically suggests that both the Pine and Hemsworth roles could be recast, and in the latter case, that wouldn't be particularly jarring. An insider for the studio claims that they "lost money on the movie".
The studio doesn't appear to be willing to scrap the movie over their potential departures, and the deals with Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, and John Cho are "expected to close". Star Trek 3 only grossed $343 million on a $190 million budget. The 2009 movie made only $385 million worldwide, but it made $257 million from domestic receipts. Star Trek 4 will make history as the first-ever installment in the longstanding franchise to be directed by a woman. The actor signed for Star Trek 4 even before he shot Star Trek Beyond in 2015. Paramount also has their Quentin Tarantino-scripted Star Trek film in development, so it will be interesting to see how they play their hand with Star Trek 4.
